How does our group supports BARC?

BARC is funded fully by the City of Houston and quite often, the budget does not allow for “extra” items needed in order to care for the animals. Friends of BARC has a fund set aside to assist in cases where the budget has been expended or special items are needed. To date, we have donated the following to BARC:

Medical equipment
Surgical table for spay and neuter
Cauterizing machine
Ophthalmic surgery kit (2)
Post-surgery body warmers
E-collars for post surgery

Medical supplies
Medications the city of Houston is unable to afford or has not budgeted (Bravecto, Gabapentin, Trazadone)

Medical personnel
Paid salaries of contract veterinarians when BARC’s budget fell short (2017?)

Heartworm treatment
Adulticide (Diroban/Immiticide)
Pre- and post-treatment medications (Doxycyline, Prednisone, Tramadol)

Kennel equipment and supplies
